Step 1: Choose at Least 3 Colors of String
Step 2: Measure String
Measure the string from your shoulder to your wrist (this is only approximate, it doesn't have to be perfect)
Step 3: Cut 3 Pieces of Each Color of String
Step 4: Knot All of the Strings Together
Make sure to leave a tail above the knot so you can tie the two ends together at the end
Step 5: Tape the Knotted Ends to a Hard Surface
You can use cardboard, a table, the back of a chair, or even your leg for this
Step 6: Sort Strings
Sort the string so that the colors are in the order that you want and the strings of every color are next to each other
Step 7: Start Your Knots
Hold the second string in your dominate hand and make 2 forward knots.
To make a forward knot drape the first string over the second one making the shape of a 4 (as shown above) and then wrap the tail of the first strand under the second one pulling it to the top then pulling it tight.
Step 8: Continue Knotting
Using the first string make two forward knots across all the other strings one at a time until you run out of strings
Step 9: Start a New Row
Once you get to the end of all the strings, pick up the new first string and repeat step 9 until the bracelet is the length that you want it to be
Step 10: Knot Ends
Once your bracelet is the length that you want it to be knot all the strings together and tie the two ends together
